General description

Despite the EU sets integrated settlement development (ISD) as guiding principle in settlement/urban developments, there is no higher education course in ISD in the cross border area. Whilst the practicing profession has relevant and expanding experiences and knowlegde based on a place-based particularities of the border region, the right ISD implementation endeavours are not supported by the knowledge centres of border zone higher education organisations.
As joint research activities and educational course from the backbone of the project, it promotes enlargement of specific local knowledge base as regards ISD, based on built architecture values of border region.
Overall objective of ISD Uni project is jointly developing and delivering an ISD pilot course for increasing the educational offer of concerned local higher education institutions and strengthening their competences/knowledge centres. The project therefore fosters improvement of communication between higher educational institutions by improving the role of educational institutions as intellectural centres for increasing the specific knowledge base in the region. By doing so it contributes to overall and specific objectives of the programme.

This project has been implemented with the financial assistance of the European Union within the Hungary-Croatia Interreg V-A Co-operation Programme.
